The Game Room is on it's way...

Our game room/ wanna be craft room has been stagnant for quite some time now. Between my multiple decor personalities, lack of time and of course there is always that budget thing, not much has gone on in this room. When we first purchased the home in late 2007 it looked like this....

I was feeling very "Tuscan" in 2007 so before long it looked like this..

(Try not to be distracted by the Lil' Man and his buddies rockin' out)

I'd love to show you a staged photo of what the room looked like but I never thought to take one B.B.
That's "Before Blogging"

These next photos are the closest your going to get.

A little vignette on my old desk showing some of my thrift store finds.

A shot of our video game area. Even though the color looks horrid in this photo it was perfect for the Tuscan look and appeared much nicer in person.

This was my little craft corner. I loved the way it looked but it wasn't enough storage.

Well since then the room has survived quite a few of my "color of the moment" phases.

And so has Mr. Treasures.

We finally settled on a cream color for the walls and hung the Cost Plus curtains!

The red hutch now sits between the windows where my desk once was.
(still need to hang the second set of cost plus curtains)

If you follow along on facebook you'll know that this is the 5'8' Jute rug from Cost Plus World Market that was originally $149.00 marked down to $45.00. If that wasn't good enough? The always friendly Mr. Treasures managed to get another $10.00 off! We can put that towards the pile of bills you see in the photo! HA!!

Along the other wall is a Sidewalk Sunday special....

That will soon hold wicker baskets full of crafty goodness similar to this photo

from Atlanta Homes by Erica George Dines

 Did you see the HUGE bubble gum machine?

We scored that from Grandpa Treasures. Just need to fill 'er up!

Yep, It is safe to say that the Game Room is on it's way.

Can't wait to see you finish renovating that game room. Seeing this blog post made me realize that it's about time I give myself a reward and make my own game room.

Angie said...

Thank you Tomasa! Sadly the room looks pretty much the same as it did when I took these photos a month ago! Hoping to button it up soon!!
